I redesigned every job I’ve had. The inspiration for it usually had something to do with global travel, imagining the future, and educating people on what it really meant to show up everyday. Especially if the job involved arming myself with a standard issue suit of armour for cubicle warfare. The only thing “uniform” in the workplace that should really matter is presence.
Style, like high performance, is the outcome of meaningful evolution. The expectation of cookie-cutter, if anything, amped up my longing to be me. Being on the curvier side of size I’ve never done well fitting into anything narrow, especially minds.
I’ve actually been drooling over leadership, learning and lipsticks for decades. It started with being the classroom girl boss in my single digit youth, then mock-trial lead defense attorney in high school – shoulder pad power suit and all (live & learn, right?). In college I was the unofficial career and cosmetics coach. By the time I was in the working world, assisting companies to find their voice, I realized I should’ve been pursuing this trifecta more directly. But the work was good and frankly, we all know every company could use a good makeover.
Today, all the things I love are aligned.
Helping people shine from within. Sometimes in the mirror and always at work. Owning your strengths is the secret sauce to success.
Making organizations shine so people can be more of their best self, full time. I’m just as excited to work through the little details and graces as I am the big blind spots. I connect the dots to create more vibrant and meaningful stories worth retelling.
Designing brand & culture strategy. Researching, writing, humanizing, contouring, blending and other novel ways to experience wellbeing, empowerment, and joy.
I want to help people and organizations Play Smart & Feel Fabulous. One of these days I’ll launch @RocktheGlow.com – a good-life guide to curating the extraordinary in lifestyle and wellbeing.
It’s fantastic to be more of who I already am and part of a tribe that can appreciate leopard print + leading for the future as a force to be reckoned with.
